Is 87 your birth year or IQ?

Not to derail. But why are lefty batter swings usually the prettiest?

Look how steady that head is


Look at the barrell angle and where his hands are when it contacts the ball. It's just insane how consistent he was too.

What makes Jr's swing so silly is the fluidity of everything moving in unison from start to finish.

The universe had to give them something for making them goofy fricks that have to learn to write backwards.

Mother fricker. Was gonna say Ken Griffey Jr and the OP already said it well before.

I guess a few I can think of are Ichiro, Vlad, Barry Bonds, Tony Gwynn.

No

Darryl Strawberry had one of the best swings. He flicked the bat thru the zone and crushed the ball. Amazing how little of effort it seemed, but he hit the ball a long way.

Was just about to post that.

Also I'm shocked at no Albert Pujols mentions
